Simply Spring idea #2

 Hope you are having a happy Saturday!  I'm having fun crafting some more Spring things!

Here's a messy fun idea for decorating eggs - now I like pastel colors but not so much in my prim decorating.

That's why I love the simplicity of these eggs wrapped in jute - it's messy but just what I wanted! I got the idea from My Desert Cottage - it's a great tutorial - just click here to go to it. It is under Tutorials.

Some just in a bowl with my sweet woolie peeps!

How about some adorned with some wee buttons? Cute!
 But I really wanted to make a spring egg and bunny garland.  I have to admit this was a real pain to make!
I very nearly gave up it was so tricky trying to hold the eggs in place.  Eventually - and I know it's not perfect but I got them to hold in the wire.

 Here's Buster the bunny - all wired up you might say!

Well that's all for today folks and I hope to be back early next week to share another quick idea.
Thanks so much for your words of encouragement - you are all so sweet!

Have a great weekend!

  16. omogosh, i love the jute covered eggs. Yours are adorable.
    I recently made some and also attached buttons. They are just so prim looking aren't they? But gee, did you use hot glue like I did? If so, I'm sure your missing a few fingerprints right now. lol.

  17. Ooooo! I have been looking for some more ideas to cover my ugly old non-prim plastic eggs! I did decoupage paper, fabric, and now I am trying this!

    Thank you for sharing your adorable ideas! I need to swap out your winter tutorials for these on my blog. *sigh*...
